From our friends at the AP:

Quote :
"Iran confirmed for the first time Wednesday that it has fully developed solid fuel technology in producing missiles, a major breakthrough that increases the accuracy of missiles hitting targets.

Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani told The Associated Press that Iran has made an "important step forward" in developing the technology, which provides the Islamic Republic with the ability to fire solid-fuel engine ballistic missiles like the Shahab-3.

The Shahab-3, with a range of 1,300 kilometers (810 miles) to more than 1,930 kilometers (1,200 miles), is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and reaching Israel and U.S. forces in the Middle East."


So, a nuke program and missiles that can deliver the goods. Here's hoping that deterrence really is the best way to keep the peace. Otherwise, this could get nasty.

Anyone else wonder if M.A.D. is enough to deter Islamists?

no, I don't think so. They have no problem killing themselves killing us. The Russians were scared of MAD as we were... I don't think the same rule applies to these fundamentalists.

Time for another war.

^How's starting a war going to help, if Iran can defend itself with nukes? Are you suggesting a pre-emptive war on the model of the great success in Iraq?

I'm just wondering if they'd ever be ballsy enough to nuke Israel.

^^ Not viable. If one hair on Israel's head gets knocked out of place, we'd be right back into it.

Why? We have never come to Israel's defense militarily before. Why would we suddenly do so now?

You mean that if Israel is nuked, you believe the United States would remain neutral?

i don't know what to think of you hoping they nuke themselves. that's not a very human response.

however, I do think it's none of our business what they do. I say we convert quickly to renewable fuels, get the fuck out of the middle east, and let them do whatever they're going to do.

ooh, and fuck israel. they're not our problem either.

i agree with you on this. not so much as a "we're destroying the earth" way as a "give the middle finger to the middle east" way.

and before somebody brings up our support of israel, FUCK ISRAEL. they need to be able to get along with their neighbors and that goes for syria, lebanon, egypt and jordan too.
